sexual generation In Cynipidae, the males and females that emerge from galls to mate and lay eggs that will become the agamic generation of parthenogenetically reproducing females. In general, sexual-stage galls follow a period of rich resources and precede a period of poor resources. Sexual individuals are generally smaller and less fecund than members of the agamic generation.
